As the story unfolds, Gray digs deeper into the life of her deceased fiance, realizing he may not have been the man she thought she knew, and is faced with numerous challenges in dealing with the resulting sadness and anger welling up inside of her.
Catch and Release isn't your typical romantic comedy.
After the sudden death of her fianc, Gray Wheeler (Jennifer Garner) finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam (Kevin Smith), hyper- responsible Dennis (Sam Jaeger), and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz (Timothy Olyphant), an irresponsible playboy whom shed previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world.
As secrets about her supposedly perfect fianc emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.
Given her prior writing experience, I had high hopes Grant could take what many would consider difficult subject matter and gracefully create a charming experience built on tragedy.
Sadly, my hopes were dashed by the time the credits rolled.
Her only source of comfort is found in Grady's three best friends, Fritz (Timothy Olyphant), Dennis (Sam Jaeger) and Sam (Kevin Smith), who each deal with the tragic loss in different ways.
Sam becomes the house recluse, refusing to go in to work in favor of eating and drinking his way out of depression--Dennis tries to keep a level head and proceed with business as usual (though we soon find out he's been hiding a secret from Gray during the six years she was dating Grady)--and Lastly, Fritz is the womanizing bad-boy of the group, but also the one who appears to have known Grady the best.
In the end, the characters are simply not convincing enough to carry the romantic underpinnings of their relationship, and it makes the film as a whole seem a little too contrived.
